No problem - we need each other for sure! My dietitian will video call me on August 19th to go over my pre-op diet. Due to my weight, it will only be 1 week. I'm so excited! I have my anesthesia assessment appointment August 13th at the hospital I will be having surgery. So - I'm almost there!! I will be taking 3 weeks off, returning after my follow-up with surgeon 9/18. EXCITED!


That's great, your covered from every angle and ready to go. What does the preop diet consist of? Is it liquids? I didnt have to do a preop diet but in a way I wish I did. I feel like it's good prep to what you will have to do after. X

4 days full liquids & 3 days clear liquids before surgery. She advised me to have a journal before our video conference so I can start accounting for what goes in my mouth. My daughter pulled a nice monthly schedule off internet and I made a nice note book (attached).

She almost started me on my Vitamins over a month ago so I can get adjusted to taking them timely with my work schedule - 4am, 8:00am, 12:30pm(after lunch) and last one before bed. I've been taking the Biotin capsules for 3 months to get them in my system but will switch over to the biotin melts after surgery to get a headstart from Hair loss. I take these before I leave work so they aren't close to my last Vitamin intake. Just being proactive before surgery!

My surgeon only required the clear liquid diet 2 days before surgery. I’m supposed other people are doing it for so long. My surgery date is August 20th!

My Pre-Op appt is Wed. So I imagine that's when I'll have to start my liquid for the 19. that would only be 4 days for me.

My doc required 3 weeks high protein/very low carb diet, then clear liquids only the day before surgery. My surgery time tomorrow isn’t until 1 pm. I can continue with clears until 9 am tomorrow.
